This modern introduction to seismic data processing in both exploration and global geophysics demonstrates practical applications through real data and tutorial examples. The underlying physics and mathematics of the various seismic analysis methods are presented, giving students an appreciation of their limitations and potential for creating models of the sub-surface. Designed for a one-semester course, this textbook discusses key techniques within the context of the world's ever increasing need for petroleum and mineral resources - equipping upper undergraduate and graduate students with the tools they need for a career in industry. Examples presented throughout the text allow students to compare different methods and can be demonstrated using the instructor's software of choice. Exercises at the end of sections enable students to check their understanding and put the theory into practice and are complemented by solutions for instructors and additional case study examples online to complete the learning package.Read more
- Supplemented by an online package of learning resources available at www.cambridge.org/zhou, including solutions to exercises for instructors, PowerPoints and JPEGs of all figures from the book, and additional tutorial and case study examples
- Emphasises the utility of common seismic analysis methods using tutorial examples to expose students to the practical issues and method limitations
- Presents methods common to both exploration and global geophysics including seismic data processing, migration and model building
Reviews & endorsements
"This book is a valuable reference for senior undergraduates and graduates in exploration geophysics and seismology. It covers all the common methods and steps of seismic data processing, using clearly presented mathematics. In particular, helpful boxes in the text enable readers to better understand both basic and crucial information, supported well by the exercises and further reading list also provided."

"… this book provides the material required for a one-semester course in seismic data processing and analysis. However, it is also a useful reference resource for professional geophysicists. Mathematical content has been minimized, and the book is lavishly illustrated with many useful diagrams and seismic data sets."
